core tip: the promulgation of the ban on bagged alcoholic beverages has also laid a good market foundation for the African alcoholic beverage bottling market and the export of Chinese bottling machines to Africa

[China Packaging News] the Ugandan government has issued a ban on the sale/trading of packaged alcoholic beverages in Uganda from May 30, 2019. According to the new directive issued by Amelia kyambadde, the Minister of trade of Uganda, all alcoholic beverages with a minimum of 200 ml must be filled in plastic bottles or glass bottles. Failure to comply with the ban will lead to the closure of enterprises

Kyambadde pointed out in a statement on March 1 that the government has set up a committee to supervise the implementation. She pointed out that the government decided to ban the packaging and sales of alcoholic beverages in small bags through the cabinet directive issued in 2017, which means that this process will transition from packaging in small bags to packaging and sales of alcoholic beverages in plastic bottles and glass bottles

in addition, the Ministry and the alcohol manufacturers under the Uganda alcohol industry association have agreed on a road map for the procurement and installation of new bottled packaging production equipment, including the construction of new plants for these new technology bottling machinery. This process took two years and attracted investment in several bottled equipment to achieve industry transformation

in fact, Uganda is not the first and only African country to ban the sale of packaged alcoholic beverages. On March 1, 2017, the Tanzanian government issued a ban, announcing that Tanzania has joined the list of African countries that prohibit the import, manufacture, sale and consumption of packaged alcoholic beverages

in addition, Cameroon, C ô te d'Ivoire, Senegal, Malawi and Rwanda have also taken similar injunctive measures. According to the analysis of China (3) non Trade Research Center for metal impact test, the production, sales and consumption of bagged alcoholic beverages in African countries are prohibited mainly based on the following two considerations

1) reduce the impact on the environment and soar

these small bags containing various alcoholic beverages pollute the environment, because they will be thrown away after consumption. These non degradable plastic bags pose a great threat to the environment. In addition, drinking bagged alcoholic beverages also runs counter to the "plastic ban" issued by African countries in recent years

2) in addition, protecting the physical and mental health of young people

the drinking of bagged alcoholic beverages is also a public health problem, because these alcoholic beverages are consumed by young people in large quantities. They are easy to be hidden by students in their trouser bags or schoolbags, so it is easy to enter the classroom. In some African schools, you can see young students "suck" 50ml of bagged alcoholic beverages between two courses. Therefore, the ban on bagged alcoholic beverages is generally welcomed by African parents, teachers and other groups

alcoholic beverages in bags are usually cheap, and some brands sell for only $0.25 a bag. The report shows that the sales of alcoholic beverages in some African regions are even better than soda. After drinking, customers often throw empty bags on the road, into the sewer or open space

in fact, even pregnant women and drivers in some African countries are interested in this kind of cheap packaged alcoholic beverages, which poses a great threat to public health problems. However, it is noteworthy that the formulation system of hindered amine light stabilizer + benzoxazinone ultraviolet absorber + 2-phenylenoate anti-aging has been established. The promulgation of the ban on bagged alcoholic beverages has also laid a good market foundation for the African alcoholic beverage bottled market and the export of Chinese bottlers to Africa
